ARCA to join NASCAR for a pair of race weekends at Kansas Speedway in 2024

The ARCA Menards Series will return to Kansas Speedway for a double dip of races, the first a part of a triple-header with the NASCAR Xfinity Series and the NASCAR Cup Series in May, and the second part of a quadruple-header in September with the NASCAR CRAFTSMAN Truck Series also joining the card. 

The series’ first 2024 visit, set for Saturday, May 4, will be the opening act of a same-day doubleheader with the NASCAR Xfinity Series. The weekend will conclude on Sunday, May 5 with a 400-miler for the NASCAR Cup Series. 

In September, the ARCA Menards Series will open the three-day weekend of speed with a same-day doubleheader with the NASCAR CRAFTSMAN Truck Series on Friday, September 27. On Saturday, the NASCAR Xfinity Series will race for 300 miles, while the NASCAR Cup Series will race for 400 miles on Sunday. 

“Our relationship with Kansas Speedway goes back to the groundbreaking for the track in 1999,” said ARCA president Ron Drager. “We’ve raced there every year since the track opened in 2001, and we’ve raced there twice a year since 2020. The track itself, and the Midwest market it serves, have made it an important part of our schedule now for 23 years.” 

Jason Jarrett, son of three-time Daytona 500 winner and 1999 NASCAR Cup Series champion Dale Jarrett, won the track’s first-ever ARCA Menards Series race in June 2001. Other notable winners include 10-time series champion Frank Kimmel, who won three times at Kansas Speedway including his record-breaking 80th career win in 2013, current NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series stars Christian Eckes, Corey Heim and Nick Sanchez, NASCAR Xfinity Series regulars Parker Kligerman and Sheldon Creed, and current NASCAR Cup Series standouts Alex Bowman, Chase Briscoe, and Ty Gibbs.
